Speaking Out (and Taking a Stand) against Rape and Violence on Campus: A Chat with Brenda Tracy

Aired on Wednesday, September 6th.

Our guest on this installment of StudioTulsa is Brenda Tracy, a registered nurse who's based in Oregon. Tracy speaks often about sexual assault and physical violence on America's college campuses. In 1998, while she was a student at Oregon State, she was gang raped by four men -- two of whom were Oregon State football players. For many years afterward, as we learn on today's show, Tracy did not speak publicly about this devastating personal tragedy. Today, however, she speaks out against sexism and violence at colleges and high schools all over the nation -- please see brendatracy.com for more info -- and indeed, she addressed a group of student athletes here at TU just last night.
